The Garden Club of Virginia encourages interest and knowledge in growing, exhibiting and judging horticulture through a variety of activities within member clubs. Horticulture workshops, lectures, garden visits and educational displays are mainstays in each of the GCV districts in order to prepare for the hundreds of floral designs and garden tours during Historic Garden Week.
The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.┬а Hanna Rion
